Mohan Kapur plays Yusuf, Kamala’s father.

Kapur said, "It’s the story of a family in a land that’s not their own, but they’ve called it their home. And that’s beautiful.”

"She’s a 16-year-old kid with super powers, fine, we’ve seen that before. But she’s also a fan of every other hero within the MCU canon," said Vellani.

"That fascination and excitement are so shared with real-life Marvel fans, so that’s why we relate to her, you know? She reacts how we would when she gets powers," she added.
